Hi,

so I recently downloaded dosbox to play Rayman on my girlfriend's Mac from gamenostolgia.

We managed to get it working and are able to play through. However, when we exit the emulation, the saves are deleted and we have to start from scratch.

Is there a way to save games on a Mac? I noticed when running the emulation, the save path is ./ (Forward Slash).

Can anyone help me?

DOS games are saved in the game folder.

Post how you are mounting your drive.
Are you using the official version of DOSBox?

I downloaded it directly from nostolgiagames. It a .app file with Dosbox/Rayman. With other emulators I have played in the past, I have to mount the games, but with this one, it plays directly, so there is no mounting per se.

We don't support so called "abandonware" here so you'll have to ask the place that packaged it. More than likely the game is misconfigured.
